To install PatioTime theme, first you need a self-hosted WordPress site. Click the link below to go to WordPress download page, there you will find useful information about installing WordPress.
If you are new to WordPress, we recommend reading some articles about basic knowledge of WordPress before you get started. WordPress is a powerful system with a lot of features, knowing some basics about it will help you to manage your site easily.
Here are some detailed WordPress beginner tutorials that we find useful:
To use PatioTime theme, please make sure your server meets the following requirements:
If you encounter any issue listed below, it is related to low PHP configuration limits:
The solution is to increase those PHP configuration limits. Please log into your hosting cPanel and change them. Or you can try to contact your hosting provider and ask them to increase those limits to a minimum as follows:
In most cases you cannot update the PHP version yourself and need to contact your host about this. The upgrade process is an easy process and should be something your host can do for you without impacting your website or charging you a fee.
How to update your PHP version – by WooCommerce
We assume that you already have a running WordPress site. Now let's install PatioTime theme.
You need to download the theme zip file from ThemeForest first. Go to Downloads on ThemeForest, and find PatioTime. Download the files and find patiotime.zip - that's what you need for installation.
Please do not upload the zip file of the entire package (which contains "All files and documentation") for installation. Or you will see "The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet" error message. If you see this error message, please unzip the file you tried to upload and then find "patiotime.zip" file in it.
Here is an article you may like to read: Theme is missing the style.css stylesheet error.
If you can't install the theme via WordPress admin panel, you can try to install it via FTP.
Please note: If you are going to write custom code for the theme, then please check this section.
As mentioned above, when installing & activating PatioTime theme, you will see the notice "This theme requires the following plugin: PatioTime Core". It is the PatioTime Theme function extensions - including these features: post like, post sharing, gallery slider, Instagram feed and more.
Why do you need to install the required plugin?
Because of WordPress code standards and ThemeForest requirements: "Themes execute the presentation and styling of content, while plugins handle content creation and functionality." Therefore, some features must be included in the required plugin but not included in the theme itself.
Please follow the steps below:
If you need to find "PatioTime Core" zip file, please:
As mentioned above, when installing & activating PatioTime theme, you will see the notice "This theme recommends the following plugins…". Those plugins are not required to use the theme, but will extend the theme basic functionality. All those plugins are hosted on the official WordPress repository and are made by other authors. You don't need to install and activate all of them, just choose those you will use on your site.
The recommended plugins are:
To make sure images on your site always look sharp and clear on all devices, the recommended width of images is at least 1920 px when it is supposed to be a full-width image.
Images will be scaled and saved into different sizes after you upload them. If your website already has some images before switching to PatioTime theme, you will need to regenerate these images into the new sizes. Please use this plugin: Regenerate Thumbnails. Otherwise, the theme will use the original images when the proper image sizes cannot be found, which may slow down your website performance.
You can set image sizes via dashboard > Settings > Media.
Recommended media sizes for PatioTime theme:
After you change the media size settings, when you upload new images they will be scaled and saved into the new sizes. But for the existing images, you can use this plugin to regenerate the new sizes: Regenerate Thumbnails.
Image quality and quantity are important for a website speed & performance, and also important for user experience. You need to find a balance between them.
Before uploading your images to your website, please optimize your images first (using Photoshop or other image editing tools). Please check this article: How to Optimize Images for Better Web Design & SEO.
After uploading your images to your website, you can install this plugin to further optimize them: Smush.
After installing and activating the theme, please go to Dashboard > PatioTime, there you will find some basic settings for the theme.
In this panel, you will find some basic information about the required plugin "PatioTime Core". And there are 2 options:
When there is a newer version of the theme, after updating the theme itself, you usually need to update the required plugins to ensure maximum compatibility with the theme. However, in rare cases, some users may forget to update the plugin after updating the theme, and then some problems will occur.
In addition, some users may switch themes, they may forget to activate the required plugin after switching back to PatioTime theme, and then they will find that some features no longer work.
In order to avoid the above situations, we recommend checking both options.
In this panel, you can add some basic information for your restaurant. These information can be used in many different places on the site.
For example, the restaurant information will be displayed in the default site header's top bar.
Or, if you are using the Header Builder to create a custom site header, you can add the Restaurant Info element/widget.
At the bottom of the "Restaurant Information" page, you can add your restaurant's Opening Hours.
To display Opening Hours on your website:
In this panel, we provide the link to the online documentation so that users can easily access the documentation, without having to save the URL to the browser.
When updating the theme, please follow the following 2 steps:
We recommend Envato Market plugin. It can install WordPress themes and plugins purchased from ThemeForest & CodeCanyon by connecting with the Envato Market API using a secure OAuth personal token. Once your themes & plugins are installed WordPress will periodically check for updates, so keeping your items up to date is as simple as a few clicks.
Then go to Envato Market > Settings, click on the link to generate a personal token, and then insert it below, then save changes.
When generating your personal token, please use the same Envato account you used when purchased the theme, and make sure you have checked the following 3 permission options:
Once the Envato API connection is made from the Settings page, a list of available Themes will be shown. This will list all WordPress Themes that have been purchased through the Envato Market / ThemeForest. The page may look like this:
If there is a newer version for a theme or a plugin, it will show a notice, and you can update the item by clicking on the link Update Available.
Since the plugin checks for updates periodically, if you don't see the update notification, please wait for a while.
You can find more instructions about this plugin on this page: https://envato.com/market-plugin/
When updating PatioTime theme, if you also see this note:
"The following plugin needs to be updated to its latest version to ensure maximum compatibility with this theme: PatioTime Core."
You can choose to enable auto-update and auto-activation of the required plugin. Please go to "Appearance" > "PatioTime Theme Basic Settings", and there are 2 options:
Please check Theme Basic Settings for more details.
If you have installed any cache plugin to optimize performance, such as the "W3 Total Cache" plugin, then, after updating the theme and the required plugin (or any other third-party plugins), you need to minify CSS again, and then clear the website cache. If you are using "W3 Total Cache", please follow these steps:
If you are using another cache plugin, you can also find similar features in the cache plugin.
To import the demo content, please make sure you have installed the recommended plugin One Click Demo Import, and please also install and activate all other recommended plugins (you can deactivate the unnecessary plugins later).
After installing PatioTime theme and required/recommended plugins, refresh the page, you will see Import Demo Data under Appearance in the left sidebar. Click it, then you will see the available demos. Choose one demo, click on the Import button.
It can take a couple of minutes, please wait.
Please note: Don't import multiple demos to the same site, it will create duplicate data.
When importing finished, please follow the steps below:
It happens rarely, but if you have issues while importing a demo, please check the documentation Import Issues written by the author of the plugin One Click Demo Import (which we are using for demo importing feature in the theme).
If you see this error message after clicking on import button, this usually indicates a poor server configuration, usually on a cheap shared hosting (low values for PHP settings, missing PHP modules, and so on). Please see this article to know how to fix it.

Before uploading your custom fonts, it is necessary to prepare .woff and/or .woff2 files of the fonts. If you have a custom font file in another format, such as .ttf, please convert it to .woff and .woff2 using an online conversion tool, for example, you can use this free tool: CloudConvert.
You can add your Instagram feed on your website. Please note: your Instagram account needs to be public to show feed on your site.
Please go to Appearance > Customizer > General > Instagram.
Before June 2020:
For most users, there is no need to add the Instagram Access Token to display the Instagram feed on the website. Only a few users need to add the Instagram Access Token because of a connection problem between their websites and Instagram.
Since June 2020
However, starting in June 2020, Instagram made changes. Because of these changes, from June 2020, it is required to add the Instagram Access Token to connect your website with your Instagram account before you can display the Instagram feed on your website.
Please follow the guide below to connect your website with your Instagram account:
Now you can display your Instagram feed on your website.
"Why do I need to install this third-party plugin?"
In order to resolve this Instagram connection issue, you need to add your Instagram Token to your website. Since Instagram API made changes frequently, we use this third party plugin "Smash Balloon Social Photo Feed" to manage Instagram Token. This is a plugin specifically made for Instagram feed, which is stable and frequently updated. Please keep it activated so that it can connect your website with your Instagram account.
By default, the Instagram cache will exist for up to 2 hours, which means that if your Instagram has just added some new photos, those photos will not be shown on your website until the cache expires. In some cases, you may like to manually clear the cache. Please open your WordPress Customizer, go to General > Instagram, find the “Clear Instagram Cache” option, and click the “Clear Cache” button.
If you use any caching plugin on your site, you may find that sometimes your Instagram photos stop updating, especially if you haven’t updated your site content for a while, such as posting a new article. This is because the Instagram feature uses PHP code to render content by default. When the cache plugin works, the code of the Instagram feature may not run.
To avoid this problem, please open your WordPress Customizer, go to General > Instagram, find the “Load Instagram pictures dynamically with AJAX” option, tick the box to enable this option.
Instagram feed cannot be displayed on your website?
Please check by following the steps below:
You can display the Yoast SEO breadcrumbs on your website. Breadcrumbs are a way to help your users better navigate your site and its structure. Additionally, they can appear on Google and provide a better user experience.
PatioTime provides several places for manually inserting ads.
If you are using Google AdSense Auto Ads, Google will automatically place ads where they’re likely to perform well. More information about this feature can be found here: About Auto ads
The Possible Issue:
Therefore, we cannot control where the ad is inserted on your website. Sometimes, you may find that the sticky sidebar is incorrectly positioned and may overlap other content. This is due to the fact that when Google AdSense Auto Ads inserts ads to the sidebar, it is not added in the correct position, causing the position of the sticky sidebar to be calculated incorrectly.
Because we cannot control where the ad is inserted on your website, to resolve this issue, the possible solutions are as follows:
Important! After making changes, please clear your website cache and browser cache, and reload the page to check again.

You can start to create your own products, or perhaps you’d like to see what sample orders and products look like, then you can choose to import some dummy content. Please check this article Importing WooCommerce Dummy Data to know details.
Product Images settings can be found under the Customizer, in WooCommerce > Product Images:

Blurry Product Images?
Please read this article to know how to Fixing Blurry Product Images.
After you have set up your online store and created some products, you can tweak the layout of the shop index page and single product page via WordPress customizer. Please go to Customizer > WooCommerce to customize your shop pages.
If you'd like create some food addons (extra product fields) like in the screenshot below, please install and activate this plugin: Advanced Product Fields (Product Addons) for WooCommerce.
Please note: according to ThemeForest Support Policy, Item Customization is not included in item support:
Item support does not include services to modify or extend the item beyond the original features, style and functionality described on the item page. For customization services that will help you tailor the item to your specific requirements, we recommend contacting the author to see if they privately offer paid customisation services or checking out the great service providers on Envato Studio.
And as we don't provide any customization service, when you need help with item customization, we recommend hire a developer to do the customization work for you. And you can check Envato Studio – there are many developers providing theme customization service. You can search with keywords “Theme Customization” to find the suitable developers for your project.
Sometimes you might like to add some custom CSS to your site to personalize some elements' styles. In the customizer, please locate to Additional CSS sub section and add your custom CSS code. Like the example showing in the screenshot below:
This is a default feature of WordPress since WordPress v4.7. If you can’t find Additional CSS sub section in your customizer, then it means your WordPress version is lower than 4.7, please update your WordPress to the latest version.
And after adding custom CSS code, if you don't see any changes, please clear your site cache and your browser cache, then refresh the pages and check again.
If you are going to write custom code for the theme, please use Child Theme.
A child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality and styling of the parent theme. Child themes are the recommended way of modifying an existing theme.
Please download the whole package of PatioTime theme (not just the installable WordPress theme zip file), unzip it and you will find WordPress Child Theme > patiotime-child.zip. Install the parent theme first, then install the child theme, and activate the child theme.
Then you can change code or write your own custom styles for the theme in the child theme files. Later when you need to update the theme, just update patiotime.zip (the parent theme), so your custom code changes will not be overwritten (because they are all in the child theme).
You may like to read more regarding the child themes on official WordPress codex page: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes.
Since WordPress treats the parent theme and the child theme as 2 different themes, based on WordPress logic, it cannot automatically inherit customizer settings.
Therefore, if you need to switch to the child theme after using the parent theme for a while and keep all the customizations made in the parent theme, please follow the steps below.
You can use this plugin Customizer Export/Import to export the customizer settings of the parent theme, and then import the data to the child theme (or vice versa).
Here is an example of exporting the parent theme customizer settings and importing them to the child theme customizer:
After switching to the child theme, if you find that menus have disappeared, please reassign the menus to the menu locations.
When working with PatioTime theme, you can translate everything to any language, and you can also make a bilingual/multilingual site.
Table of Contents:
You can install this third-party plugin on your website and translate the theme text directly from your website dashboard: Loco Translate.
Please read the plugin's documentation for the detailed user guide:
When using Loco Translate, on your website dashboard, please go to "Loco Translate" > "Themes" > find "PatioTime" (or "PatioTime Child", depending on which theme is activated). Click on "PatioTime" then you will be able to add a new language, or edit the translation of an existing language.
When "Initializing new translations", please find "Choose a location": you will choose where to save your translation file. (More details can be find here.)
You can change the location for translations. On the editor screen of a language, please click the "Relocate" tab, there you can change the location, and then click "Move Files".
Once on the editor screen you'll see all the strings included in the .pot file of the theme. The basics of the editor should be fairly intuitive. Select the English string at the top and enter your translation in the pane at the bottom. You just need to enter a translation and save it.
Please kindly note: Loco Translate is a third-party plugin created and maintained by other authors (not us), when you need help with this plugin, please contact the author of the plugin. This is the support forum for "Loco Translate".
You can use Loco Translate to change some text instead of translating it.
For example, if you'd like to change the text of the load more button from "Load More Posts" to "Load More Recipes" (from one English word to another English word), please follow the steps below:
If you are going to create a bilingual or multilingual website, we recommend using Polylang or WPML.
The differences between these 2 plugins:
In this chapter, we will provide simple explanations and points to explain how to make your WordPress site to be a bilingual/multilingual site when you are using PatioTime theme and the third-party plugin Polylang.
If you want to use WPML, please read the next chapter.
Please note: because Polylang is a third-party plugin, so we will only provide links to this plugin’s official documentation. We will not be able to provide details about how to use this plugin, or provide support service for this plugin.
There are several different types of content that need to be translated separately:
Resources of Polylang:
Theme Strings: they are strings written in the theme code (included in the .pot file), for example, "Join the Conversation" (Comments Section Title) on each single post or page. To translate these strings, please follow this guide: Translating the theme.
Please make sure you have translated all the Theme Strings you need.
Please note: if you have imported demo data, then some strings are entered into the customizer during the demo importing process, then you will need to translate these strings by Polylang. Please see more details in "Step 3 – 2. Translate User Defined Strings".
Polylang allows you to translate user defined strings such as the site title, the tagline, or the widget titles. Moreover themes and plugins can allow you to translate their options here.To translate User Defined String, you must use the Strings Translations Table of the Polylang plugin.
There are 2 types of User Defined String:
For all widgets you have now the possibility to choose to display it for all languages (default) or only one language. If you select "All languages" you will have the possibility to translate the title in the Strings translation option.Please read this article: https://polylang.pro/doc/widgets/.
On your website dashboard, please go to Appearance > PatioTime Basic Settings, you will find the MC4WP Multilingual Manager for Polylang. This option will show when Polylang and MC4WP are installed and activated.
In this chapter, we will provide some explanations and points to explain how to make your WordPress site to be a bilingual/multilingual site when you are using PatioTime theme and the third-party plugin WPML.
If you would like to know the differences between Polylang and WPML, please check this chapter.
Table of Contents:
When you have created some pages and posts on your website, you can translate them into other languages.
For example, if you are going to translate a page. On your website dashboard > "Pages" > in the "All Pages" list, you will see these icons (translation controls) in the "Language" column. Or, you will find the "Language" box when editing the page.
Click on the "+" button of the language you are about to translate the content to. For example, "German". This creates a new German translation for it. Then enter the content written in German. And publish the page.
If you need to updating the translation of a page or post, please go to "Pages" or "Posts". For the translated pages or posts, the "+" icon will change to a pencil icon. Click on the pencil icon if you need to modify your translation.
Translating post tags is just as same as translating categories. The only difference is you only need to enter tag Name and Slug.
You can also translate post categories and tags via WPML Taxonomy Translation.
The following texts need to be translated on the String Translation screen. (Read more about Theme and Plugin Localization.)
By default, WPML doesn’t scan or load these translation files into the database. Because of this, you will not be able to find these strings on the WPML → String Translation page. If you want to translate or edit these strings, you first need to scan the translation files of the related theme or a plugin.
To translate texts coming from the theme and plugins, you need to scan them first. Go to the WPML → Theme and plugins localization page and find Strings in the themes box. Select "PatioTime" and click the Scan selected themes for strings button.
Please navigate to WPML → String translation page. Then you can:
For example, let's translate the "Load More Posts" button. The original text is entered in the customizer.
Please download and install this add-on: MailChimp for WordPress Multilingual. Please go to WPML and log into your account, then please go to "Download" page to download the MailChimp for WordPress Multilingual add-on. And then upload it to your website, install and activate it just as you would any other WordPress plugin.
Please read the WPML Offical Documentation: MailChimp for WordPress Multilingual.
WPML lets you translate WordPress menus and create different menus per language. You can translate menus manually, or have WPML synchronize menu content. Please check Translating Menus for more details.
WPML lets you easily translate your Widgets via the String Translation screen. This requires that the WPML String Translation module is installed. The module is available in the Multilingual CMS version.
Besides translating widgets, WPML allows you to display different widgets for different languages.
A language switcher allows visitors to select the language in which they want to read your content. WPML lets you add a language switcher in different ways: in a menu, as a widget, or in the site’s footer. You can also use it to show links above or below your posts, offering them in other languages.
To add and customize language switchers, go to WPML → Languages in the WordPress dashboard, then you will find the following settings on this page:
Each language switcher type has its own settings. This allows you full and independent control over what it includes and how it looks. When clicking on the "Pencil" icon, it will show a dialog box with settings for the menu language switcher.
If you need help with using WPML with PatioTime theme, please head over to WPML technical forum. Before posting about issues, we recommend that you review this quick checklist:
Please always remember to search and read WPML official documentation for more details about how to use WPML.

Therefore, when you submit a support request, please be sure to provide as much information as possible so that when we start to process your request, we can have enough information and provide accurate answers instead of asking for other necessary information (this will cause it to take longer to solve the problem for you).
If you have less than 6 months remaining on a support item you’re eligible to renew your support. For more information about Item Support renewals, please see Extending and Renewing Item Support.
